Will Soon Be

.

“My thoughts,

I think,

will soon be sound.

My mind,

I hope,

will soon be found.”

potential

can be

imagining the best

making the world better

possibilities

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

opportunities
incubate new ideas
possibilities

building a better mousetrap
sending a man to the moon

.

Poem:

.

the gentle flower succumbs to the violent storm
the egomaniac orchestrates a horrible holocaust
God and man their wills to perform
self satisfaction sought at any cost

in God’s universe evolution cures all ills
man’s world requires some recapitulation
while many succumb to the need for pills
imagine a world with only one nation

too many questions, never enough answers
will the truth be something different tomorrow
will the soul submit to cancers
is there some time that we may borrow

today let’s choose to be positive
every day is a good day to be happy
have faith that anything is possible
that the cure for everything will be chocolate candy

gratitude that you have the time to share some love
aware that your blessings come from above

Self-understanding

.

.

“For what is a poem

but a hazardous attempt

at self-understanding:

it is the deepest part

of autobiography.”

.

– Robert Penn Warren

Happiness
Supreme delight
Attaining considerable good
Manna for the soul
Felicity

.

Haiku:

.

felt but rarely seen

hot or cold the air shimmers

visible seasons

.

Poem:

.

A beautiful thing
a work of art
it makes the soul sing
the flowers in the cart
the bird on the wing
Mother Nature knows her part

today my eyes must yearn to see
and learn what beauty means to me

the subtle curves of the human body
the rainbow displaying all of the colors
the culture that enjoys decors gaudy
or is it natures well camouflaged wonders

beauty grows when viewed from the heart
to touch, to smell, to imagine, satisfaction
is there a real message in abstract art
or just wishing to evoke a shocked reaction

calm, serene enjoying the aesthetic
a positive attitude of happiness
to looking beyond the artificial cosmetic
wonderful memories that are priceless
the real, the surreal, never synthetic
accepting all splendor as God’s kindness

today my eyes must yearn to see
and learn what beauty means to me
